Antique electronics

Surplus antiques. Vintage things that just won't go away.

Ok. I'll admit. This stuff has no real value other then historical. To some it may bring memories to others novelties. Hopefully some of it may find a home not a junkyard.

This one's my alltime favorite. A fullblown vintage Teletype (TTY). With dialer, terminal, data-entry/record (paper-tape R/W) and printer. Who could ask for more.

Following closely on the favorites list is a General Automation computer from JPL off the NASA Viking project. The CPU in this beauty is a collective of hundreds of TTL chips. Additionally the memory is actual 'core' (little toroidal cores carefully strung with fine magnet wire). This is 'Small Scale Integration' at it's finist.

There are also several audio devices. A few radio tuners, preamplifiers, amplifiers, filters, attenuators... All old. All untested. All probably junk. Maybe there is some art value.

When I saw this one I thought it was a geiger counter. But I didn't remember ever acquiring one. And I didn't. It says 'Photo-Ionizer' what ever that is. It's also in much better shape then it looks. As are most things here. It is very dusty. Twenty years of dusty.

There are more then half a dozen terminals including a pair of very cute, rack mount, miniterminals. All of these are at least VT-52 some VT-100 compatable.

And lastly what lab would be complete without it's huge collection of prehistoric (from today's prespective) junk. What do you do with this stuf.
